"This is my first time using a landscaper and I couldn't be happier.
truly transformed my yard from an overgrown foreclosed mess of four" years to the show place of the neighborhood I've already had sevenof my neighbors come by and tell me how beautiful it turned out. I had several landscapers come in with their designs and most of them looked like an office building. But
listens to everything I said and made it come true! I didn't want a lot of shrubs I wanted blooming all year round with easy maintenance and hybrid
, easier said than done. But that's exactly what they did. I have a dozen different varieties of plants around my yard all of them blooming for different period with different colors that all fit together perfectly. They came in the morning and workd all day nonstop. I came out multiple times to check on their work. I found them very meticulous at removing all the weeds and miscellaneous growth throughout my yard to prepare the bed for the new plants. Even the day of the planting
saw another plant at the nursery when she was picking things up. She knew my wife liked pink hydrangeas, she called and asked for her permission to make the change and boom it was done. All they want to do is please the customer. And they succeeded! When they were done they cleaned up throughly, and checked in to make sure everything was done the way I wanted it. They have checked in with me a couple of times to make sure everything is OK and I'm guaranteed everything for 1 year. The pricing was fair and they delivered on everything they promised and more. I have already spoken to them about coming back in the spring and doing some hardscaping to create patio in my backyard. I really can't believe how lucky I was to find this company!

"Really impressed with the professional and warm, caring demeanor displayed by
. He really inspires trust. Responsive and attentive and" good follow up. Willing to tweak tiny things that I wanted changed after the fact. Great crew. Lovely young man, Dusty, worked really hard and was a pleasure to have around. He did a few "while you are here could you also..." requests. I feel confident if I notice any issues next year they will be willing to address them.

How to Get Rid of Springtails

One of the most effective ways to control springtails is to dry out the infested area. Springtails require a high-moisture environment to breed and thrive, living mostly off of algaes that grow in moist conditions. They will either leave the infested area or die out. If there is an infestation that cannot be controlled by drying out the infested area, use an appropriately labeled insecticide with a residual time These will typically be a liquid concentrate form, a wet-able powder form, or a dust product.  DO NOT APPLY UNTIL AREAS ARE DRY.  If area will not dry naturally, use Corn Starch to soak-up any lingering moisture and otherwise 'steer' any rain water or irrigation away from area.


Also, if there is a noticed springtail infestation around the perimeter of the structure, use the insecticide to do a barrier treatment and apply corn starch to reduce or eliminate moisture. Caulk and seal all cracks and crevices and inspect potted plants before they are brought into the house.


I would talk to your local lawn and garden supply store (or mill and feed) - NOT a box store or hardware store. There are also selective grass control chemicals. YOu can research this by Googling using search string      "Tall Fescue Control" - there are lots of articles by the USDA and individual state cooperative extension services.

There is a treatment called chlorsulfuron TFC (Tall Fescue Control) that will do this - it worked for me in western New York, but took 3 years to finish out all the tall fescue. It may now be limited to use by commercial applicators - pretty potent stuff. Can yellow bluegrass or make it phytosensitive, but our looked OK during treatment because the TFC was applied in the fall for best results, and our lawn was dormant till spring anyway.

Tall fescue can also be controlled by real short mowing, but only in areas where the bluegrass is dominant and really thrives so will eventually crowd out the trimmed fescue, but you may be too far north for that.



Lawn Care reviews in Waukee


These guys did a great job, more than I paid them to do for sure. We had a little bad luck getting an appointment scheduled and they used it as an opportunity to overwhelm me with a superior job. In my most hopeful dreams I didn't imagine my yards looking as good as they did when I got home.
- Rasmus N.

Went well. Only complaint was that he forgot to trim one of the large

plants and the cobbles on the side yard are not 2 inches deep as he indicated.

were wonderful workers and put up with me doing little jobs around them and directing what needed to be done. I would hire them again. They also took all the cuttings with them (for a small fee) which saved me lots to time, energy and money. Thank you for the good job.
- Patricia W.

Outstanding on every level!
We received an estimate from
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
in May and signed a contract with him. (All other quotes were much higher.) I found him by calling the real estate agent for a newly built home that had the very same walls I wanted.) He said he would be able to start the job in mid-
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, which he did. He contacted us the week before he started and said he would start at 8AM. He was at our house ON the day and AT the time he said he would be there. Amazing!
His crew was excellent, especially his foreman
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
! They worked every day except Sundays, from ~7AM to ~5PM and took minimal breaks. They demolished each previous wall then rebuilt in that location without tearing up all the walls/stairs/walkways at once. They were very neat, confining the mess to the smallest area possible, and cleaning up each evening. They completed this whole job (4 beautiful stone walls, granite front landing, a set of stone/granite stairs, a very long paver walkway, and a large paver patio) in ONLY 14 working days (including demolition of previous work). This whole job took ONLY 16 calendar days! The whole team was amazing to watch and the skilled craftsmanship is evident throughout the entire job.
The stone walls are gorgeous.

made a suggestion to split a very tall wall into two, with the top part set back a few feet. It was the perfect thing for that location and looks amazing!
We highly recommend
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew to everyone who asks about our yard. Several of our neighbors took one of his cards. We couldn't be happier with the masterful workmanship, the speed and cleanliness of the project, and the very reasonable price.

is the best and we will use him again!

This was tremendous. We made an order from Angie's list, because we just didn't have the time to take care of a big yard this year. For only $200

came over for a short discussion and then proceeded to transform our yerd while we were on vacation. Our neighbor noted that

brought a crew, worked efficiently and fixed our property in short order. We did not give much in the way of direction and were more than pleased with the result. we will definately ask them back for some landscaping help and other services. We want to thank

and Angie's for a superb deal.
- Daniel & Tina K.

They came in time for all three different treatments, and the treatment has helped the lawn. I have seen the technician apply it, and he was taking his time to do it, because I have used others before and I was disappointed.
- zebib A.

They arrived exactly on time, and were courteous. They got right to work and I don't think they stopped once during the 4 hours I had hired them. I would recommend them for any job.
- Pam Z.

Very courteous. Great response, great follow-up. GREAT response to last minute requests. I really like working with them
